Youth Commission with Hawktail 10/29/21

A core part of the YTV Youth Commission is linking the ensemble with mentors who teach and share tunes, arrangements, and ideas.

Mentors include Lisa Ornstein, made possible with support from the Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program at the Vermont Folklife Center in Middlebury.

On October 29th the group will spend some time with members of Hawktail and UVM students who play trad music before a concert the same evening for the UVM Lane Series.

The Nelson Family Foundation is a core supporter of this project, a next step for musicians who have been part of other programs and who show promise as composers, arrangers, teachers and ensemble leaders.
